Should have pointed up so your manager looked up and then swipe the money and act like nothing happened. YDI nikkuh

You're kidding right? It's an FML because she was offered an extra $100 and she wasn't allowed to take it!

To be honest, when you get a big tip like that. It sucks when you can't accept it. This person has been extremely generous and you have to look them in the eye and say "I'm sorry sir, but I can't accept tips." That's extremely insulting to them and a huge let-down for you.

Yeah OP deserved it because our economy sucks and workers need all the money they can get. I hope some day you wind up homeless and see how good those tips see for people with low income

Ooh well who's being a bitch tonight? You wouldn't pass up an opportunity like that if it were you.

I'm getting tired of all the people who react like this. Are you to stupid to understand that you shouldn't take the meaning of "Fuck My Life" literally? As if people would continu to read this site when all the FML's would be like: "Today, my wife died in a car accident. FML" "Today, I was told I have only two weeks left to live. FML" "Today, I found out I'm infertile. FML" FML is about the stupid/painful/dump things that happen to people in life,

Absolutely! The whole point is that this guy was personally offered $100 in cash, regardless of whether or not it's against the rules, and had to say no. That sucks no matter who you are. FYL, man, that blows.

WTF is wrong with you? of course this is a FML. are you telling me you wouldn't not mind AT ALL if you had a chance to accept an 100 dollar bill for a tip and could not? i'm guessing that you grew up in a rich fucking household and NEVER had to work in retail. let me tell you something, retail sucks fucking ass. i bet the OP deserved a tip after the way costumers usually treat the workers, jesus christ :/ I have a real job now, and it's ten times easier than retail, and i get paid more. :/

maybe the manager OFFERED to help, it's not like he needed it. And #28: Is that even legal? I thought waiters'/waitresses' incomes mostly come from tips.

Reply

that's like at noodles and company. they have to say "we'll bus the table for you and we cannot accept tips" all waiter/waitresses have to say that when they come serve your food. it blows... my friend works there and has something similar happened.

Reply

I agree with number #3. Even if your boss wasn't there, the right thing would have been to turn down the $100 and say "No thank you." You selfish prick.

Reply

How do you know the OP didn't need that money for rent or groceries or gas? You do know what happens when you assume don't you? You make an ass out of u and everyone else including me laughs at you.

Reply

Actually 100$ can pay for OP's gas, bills, and/or a portion of his rent, his insurance, and FOOD is the number one priority in humans

Could've been that managers have to check large bills. That's the way it works at my job. If someone uses denominations larger than $20, managers have to come check it. But yeah, you should be an honest employee and not accept tips if it's against company policy anyway. If someone found out, you'd be out of a job and lose more than $100.

Reply

where i used to work, if a very large amount of money was paid, the manager had to count it as well to make sure it was right. probably has nothing to do with the person's math skills. if you're 13 and have never had a job, stfu

Reply

Could have been, and if that's the case, YDI for holding a position that makes your employer think you're untrustworthy or prone to mathematical error. Chances are, though, that the OP, like you two fags, is working in retail in part because of shitty math skills. If you're 22 and think your after-school/summer jobs gave you meaningful work experience, STFU. On the other hand, if, like me, you are a professional who has supervised people, managed multimillion dollar projects and created busin

Reply

I was wondering, how do you have time to manage multimillion dollar projects and start businesses from scratch? It must be difficult to do so considering the time that you spend touting your credentials on FML.com. Please, share your knowledge with us.

@ #54: "Chances are, though, that the OP, like you two fags, is working in retail in part because of shitty math skills." So I take it, being someone who's supervised multi-million dollar projects, you wear suits to work. You wear a shirt, a pair of pants, shoes, underwear, what-have-you in your day-to-day life. SOMEONE has to manage the store where you BUY clothing. Being a cashier or a sales associate can be considered an afterschool job, but the retail world goes far beyond those

Douchebag - people take whatever jobs they can get just to put themselves through school, pay rent, whatever. Don't be such a pompous ass. Being a cashier has nothing to do with your mathematical prowess.

57 - Because I have more than two brain cells to rub together, the time I spent "touting [my] credentials" amounted to less than five minutes. Compared to the years I've been working actual jobs, that's an insignificant amount of time. Congratulations on those analytical skills, though, mouth breather. Be sure your tray tallies right at the end of your shift. 61 - No manager has a choice. The only people available to work as cashiers are those with sub-par math skills. Those with

59 - Monica and Gothymama up there aren't going to fuck you because you took up for them on the internet. Nice try, though.

i find most of the FMLs interesting, but what I find more interesting are the random arguments people start within the comments, that aren't even about the FML. I can't believe that some people actually sit down and write 5 page (im exaggerating) arguments on something that is irrelevant to the OP's post to someone that they will probably never see in their lifetime.

Reply

I really appreciate being called Monica, and right about now i would usually make a joke about my penis being one of the largest things on this webpage, but i cant even do that since your ego is here. If you need to lie about what you have accomplished in your life on a website in order to sleep better at night, by all means go ahead

That's nice, ItecKid. Lucky for you they have liberal arts curricula that don't require a lot of math at that prestigious engineering/science school. Keep it up, you plucky guy!

Reply

SheriffBart I honestly hope that you really do hope all of the credentials that you claim to have, because it makes it that much more enjoyable knowing that you have been arguing with a bored 16 year old Latino boy.

Reply

That's supposed to come as a surprise? You made all but the Latino part clear with your first couple of inane posts.

Cute comeback, except I'm a chick. Nice try though. And my comment has nothing to do with sticking up for anyone. I just know a pompous ass when I see one.

you fucking prick. i'm a cashier and i can count money forwards, backwards and any other way you want. i am a cashier because i dont need a full time job because i am a student. wow. somebody has some issues.

Reply

SheriffBart, no manager has a choice? Really? In this economy, with millions of people working in jobs they're overqualified for? Did you seriously just try to make that argument?

Reply

@SherriffBart Seriously dude, what the fuck. Every person whose job it is to take money sucks at math? Knowing what a linear differential equation is makes you a god among men? It's not fucking rocket science. It's clear you're the most accomplished professional on this site, but there's no reason to rub it in all of the peons' faces here. Too bad my liberal arts college doesn't offer any math classes above remedial high school algebra. If they did, I might sometime learn for myself about th

you sir, are an arrogant prick. and fuck you, cause i worked retail when i was in PRIVATE COLLEGE...you can't get in there with shitty math skills...talk about ignorant. i don't give a shit if you are a supervisor managing multi-gazillion dollar projects or what have you, and neither does anyone else. i've had plenty of supers with the same credentials and most of them have been ignorant clueless morons. good credentials dont make you a superior person.

109 - There are plenty of private colleges you can get in with shitty math skills. It's called liberal arts. Tard. 106 - You're right, but only about my not needing a minimum wage job to put myself through school (hint: scholarships, loans and higher paying jobs). Tard. 87 - So? Chicks can't do other chicks? Tard, 88 - Good for you, sparky. Keep up the good work and you might be promoted to washing the lettuce soon. Tard. 89 - Look at the data. The highly skilled are still in

I hope you repeatedly used the word "Tard" in your scholarship essays. You're making all of this shit up anyway. If starting stuff on here makes you hard, more power to you. Except, next time you try this, try finding something better on Wikipedia than linear differential equations. It's weak shit because some math whiz cashiers have heard of basic calculus and you won't be able to fool them.

Reply

@SherriffBart. I laugh at you, partially because I imagine I am better at maths than you (well within the top 0.1%), but mainly because I am not such a dick about it. I sit down and accept the fact I'm slightly nerdy. I don't tell everyone about it, I just go out and have friends. I don't come on the internet and start laughing at people for being less lucky than me with the genes they were given. Your mathematical prowess, and mine, are through no fault of our own. We're just the lucky fe

bart- "89 - Look at the data. The highly skilled are still in demand. Tard." Look at Michigan, or any of the other auto-based states. Then tell me I'm wrong. Tell the thousands of auto workers (like my cousin, who has an engineering degree from University of Michigan - god, he must be a dumbfuck.) who are out of work and are taking jobs doing ANYTHING they can to support their family. Present me with the data, please, enlighten me, because the 150 people here who are calling you

#116 - Less than 10% of the United States is unemployed. Just think of the bottom 10% of your high school math class. In a class of even 40 students, that's the bottom 4 people, and what kind of grades are getting? Probably F's and D's, maybe a C in there if you're lucky. I'd call that sub-par math skills.

look at sheriff who got too scared of the people calling him out and had to get a new account hahaha you're still a fuck by the way.

Dear good sir, SheriffBart, I don't know if I should ignore your ridiculous post or pity you. Considering how intricate and impressive your imagination is, I must applaud you for posting your imaginary credentials on the Internet. Surely you've had much bravado to pretend you're a successful businessman when in reality you're nothing but a poor kid, a rank amateur, who can't accept how reality has harshly dealt with you. Allow me to digress. Linear differential equations. Such basic, basic mat

I read your whole comment and got nothing out of it except for the fact that you're just another one of those pessimistic fags who thinks that a good insult requires big words.

Incorrect. You would've seen how I torn down his argument by giving proof why what he says does not add up. And how he was confused over andylink's comment.

I had a big jug full of pennies, plus a lot of silver change, then some bills on top of that, and counted it because I was bored. Shit takes a while, especially if you want it done right (ie: counting over). What a sucky job lmfao Either way, OP, that's too bad, but you SHOULD be an honest employee, so I can't say FYL or YDI. Now, if you had gotten in trouble for taking the money, that would definitely be YDI. If you hadn't taken the money and some shit went down where you could have used

Ouch well if you would have taken it you would probably been fired which is a bigger loss then a 100 bucks right.
